Small Sugar Pumpkin

From my understanding, the Small Sugar, Pie Pumpkin or Sugar Baby is where the larger Connecticut Field Pumpkin was derived. This smaller, sweeter, older relative makes delicious pies, and roasts and caramelizes beautifully. The seeds are slightly sweet and meaty for their size. The seeds also tend to have a thinner skin than the larger pumpkins, and they toast up nicely. This is one of my favorite pumpkins to cook with. It's tender flesh is easy to carve, but you get a lot from this compact little beauty.
